AFC Asian Cup 2019: 5 key facts ahead of Bahrain vs Thailand

India vs UAE football live streaming on Star Sports & Hotstar at 9 PM IST

India can expect the UAE to come hard at them after a 1-1 stalemate against Bahrain in the tournament opener. Yes, we know that in football we can hear a lot of things said outside of the pitch, like in Italy where they have three newspapers dedicated to football.

Stephen Constantine and his men will be full of confidence after their historic win against Thailand but won't be carried away by the result ahead of their clash against the hosts.

When is the AFC Asian Cup match between India and UAE? "From my side, as a coach and the players, we will do our best to win".

In the second-half, Indian coach Stephen Constantine made a change early to his side, replacing Halicharan Narzary with Jeje Lalpekhlua.

Bahrain have conceded in each of their last 19 Asian Cup games (W4 D5 L10), with their only clean sheet coming in their first such game in the competition - a 0-0 draw with Kuwait at the 1988 Asian Cup.

The AFC Asian Cup match between India and UAE will be played on January 10, 2018.

India will play their usual 4-4-1-1 formation which Stephan Constantine has used in every game since he took over as manager back in 2015.

India will be more cautious in their approach against UAE compared to their previous games against Thailand. "They played against a strong team, but they scored very well". They are expected to have most of the possession and it will be essential for India to prevent them from getting crosses into the box. "I don't take it for granted, the goals I score for my country". India struggled to retain the ball, the defenders making hasty clearances and a midfield that was nearly non-existent. Mabkhout had a bad game against Bahrain but will look for redemption against India.

Zaccheroni already doesn't have his star player Omar Abdulrahman available for the tournament, and there are also injury doubts about right-back Bandar Mohamed Al Ahbabi, attacking midfielder Saif Rashid Alshemeili, and Al Ahli striker Ahmed Khalil Aljunaibi.

Both India and UAE have played 13 matches against each other and UAE has emerged triumphant on eight occasions while India has won just three of them, two of those encounters have been draws.

On the second match-day of AFC Asian Cup 2019, Group A's India will face hosts UAE, a side which is placed 18 places higher than them in the FIFA World Rankings as India is on the 97th spot whereas UAE ranked at 79.
